Boot Hill

1969 La collina degli stivali, Regia di Giuseppe Colizzi

The last chapter of "western trilogy" directed by Giuseppe Colizzi, this film closes the chapter of spaghetti-western duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, who then would work with E.B. Clucher they will meet almost accidentally after a year to partner in the brilliant ‘Trinity’ western genre series.

Doc (Terence Hill), a wounded gunman is chased by bandits who want to steal a land grant overflowing with gold. He finds refuge in a circus caravan that leaves town before he is reached by his pursuers. They in turn retaliate by killing an artist convoy. This will unleash the wrath of the circus caravan leader, who has resued and heals Doc, and now wants revenge. Doc, realizing there will be a fight, asks for help and cooperation from an old friend: Earp (Bud Spencer) that joins them together with a young gunman nicknamed Baby Doll. They try to get rid of bandits using a trick with the collaboration of the circus.
